Home Buyers Survey in Romsley

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Romsley and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Romsley property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Romsley property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a Romsley surveyor advise on the safety of the gas supply?

A chartered surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at gas (and oil heaters) where relevant, in addition to gas related installations for example - the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. Any external fittings won't be dislodged. Of course, gas can be dangerous, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer without delay.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I should look into when buying a building in Romsley in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Surveyors in Romsley must possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local factors and any effect may have on the property and its value. Prices will likely be more than prices outside the area because of the areas being preserved.

RICS surveyors are expected note if the home looks like it may be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may be reported in the Romsley survey, however these should be concern for your legal representative.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What advice would a surveyor in Romsley give for houses constructed with Fletton brick?

Brick-built Romsley residences do benefit from many advantages over timber-built homes. Unfortunately, they also show signs of numerous defects, including moisture damage and defective mortar. For example, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and may require immediate attention. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Barnard K of 14 Freda Corbett Cl, London, SE15 6UN on 020 7635 8805.

Romsley home purchasers may need to consider that number of styles have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. One example is Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the mid-century home I am hoping to move into, it looked like there was no RCD on the fuse board - will a Homebuyer Report in Romsley write anything on the electrics?

During a Home Survey in Romsley the RICS surveyor should add detail on the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition. This should include a by sight look-over of open or exposed sections of the wiring and other possible problems relating to things like examining the category of electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of switch gear. Looking at any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by an electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Romsley.
